Suzuki developing long-wheelbase Jimny in India

Suzuki's proud orthodox off-road SUV "Jimny" is very popular at home and abroad.

India, one of the countries where the Jimny is extremely popular, will start local production of the Jimny from January 20, 2021. The car is equivalent to the Jimny Sierra in Japan.

Jimny is produced by "Maruti Suzuki India", a subsidiary of Suzuki in India. It began to invest in the development of the Suzuki Jimny 5-door long-axis model in June 2020. This test vehicle has been witnessed many times so far.

A 5-door Jimny test car with vehicle-related information was also captured in previous videos.

If the "YWD 5DR MT K15B Hi-LED" written on the paper refers to 5-door, manual transmission, K15B engine, LED high beam, it will be a big clue to solve the puzzle of 5-door Jimny vehicle specifications .

5-door Jimny development car shipped to Japan

While the 5-door Jimny is almost certain to be launched in India, it is still uncertain whether it will be sold in the global market.

In addition, in the Japanese market, due to the emission rights of the CAFE standard (average fuel consumption benchmark of each company), no matter how much Suzuki tries to shorten the delivery period of the Jimny, it is impossible to achieve it. Therefore, it is even more difficult to introduce the 5-door Jimny to Japan.

However, it was discovered that Maruti Suzuki shipped 5 Jimnys from India to Japan.

On the Volza website, which can confirm the shipment records of bills of lading in various countries around the world, there is a record of a vehicle that uses the Jimny JB74 chassis, is equipped with a K15B engine, and is marked with the 5-door Jimny development code "YWD".

In this record, the origin is India and the destination is Japan.

Testing for Japan listing layout?

It is not clear why the 5-door Jimny development car will be shipped to Japan, guess it may be for some verification in Japan.

If this verification is a driving test, it may be carried out in a non-public environment such as the company's internal test road. If it is tested on general roads, it means that the car is likely to be launched in Japan.

As long as the 5-door Jimny is launched, it will achieve good sales results. It is speculated that Suzuki will not hesitate to electrify its power system and also want to introduce this car.
